Our Bariatric Physician

Galo Grijalva, MD FACS
Board-certified Surgeon

After you meet with the physician, you will meet other members of your treatment team including your dietitian, psychologist and the WCA Bariatric nurse coordinator. You will also meet our office secretary who will help you schedule your appointments and insurance questions.

It is helpful to be active while preparing for surgery. It will help you recover faster. Physical activity will also help you lose the amount of weight recommended by your treatment team prior to surgery. We will talk to you about recommended ways that you can increase your physical activity. Before you are scheduled for surgery, you will meet with the physician.
